    On the Hellcat post production engine there is a cover right in front of the fuse cover. I noticed in the early or pre production cars there is no cover. Looks like the cover is protecting some metal lines. So the box I'm talking about is on the left side of the engine as your looking at it, just in front of the fuse box cover. What is it covering?

    So what is under the cover near the washer fluid refill. I noticed preproduction and maybe earlier cars don't have this cover.

    ABS module and HCU (hydraulic control unit).

    Interesting the early cars didn't have a cover. Does the M6 have a hydraulic clutch?

    HCU controls the flow of brake fluid to individual wheels. the HCU contains solenoids (controlled by the ABS module) that isolate, decay and build fluid pressure to the wheels.
